Jaanki & Minesh Engagement shoot Ongar Essex.

Last year October at the Asian wedding Exhibition in Excel we ran a Prize draw for an engagement shoot for one lucky couple.

Meet Minesh and Jaanki, who were our lucky couple to win this prize. When I called Jaanki up to let her know that she was the lucky winner all I heard was her screaming as she could not believe that that she had won (my ears are still ringing) 🙂

We wanted to do something a bit different with this shoot and Minesh & Jaanki rose to the challenge. We decided on a very 1960’s look with the red lips and curls for Jaanki and Minesh with the long trench coat, walking stick and bowler hat.

We started at Ongar Railway station in Essex, and finished off  at Hainault Forest for a vintage picnic with a picnic basket, Victorian sponges and lots of laughter.
We had lots of fun capturing these images hope you enjoy and don’t forget to leave your comments…….

A big thank you to  Roshni Ladva and her team for assisting with Hair and Makeup on the day.

Trish and Hena pre-wedding shoot Southwold Beach Suffolk.

When we first met Hena and Trish it was a very Bollywood feeling of seeing Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan and Hena was a small petite bubbly girl with Trish towering over Hena.
When sitting down to discuss where they would like to do their pre-shoot the initial idea was a construction site as Trish works in Construction however Hena Vetoed the idea completely.

We ended up in sunny Southwold in Suffolk. The day passed really quickly with Hena and Trish  teasing one another.
Trish and Hena were know as celebrities and the locals snapped their own pictures of Hena and Trish on the beach from splashing each other to drowning under the waves and then a nice walk on the beach and finishing the day off with a huge meal of fish and chips, as a trip to the beach is not complete without that………

Choosing the right photographers for your wedding

Weddings are filled with ritual, tradition, colour, music, dance and emotion. For the bride and groom, the wedding occasion itself can whizz past in a blur.  Once the events are over all you will have left are memories captured on photographs and film – so make sure they are great ones.

A good wedding photograph is not just about a posed, pretty looking image. It needs to capture the love, joy and excitement of some of the happiest days of the bride and grooms lives.

It is really important to choose the right Wedding Photographers to capture the right moments in the best way for you.  Unfortunately, there are many Wedding Photographers choose from and not all Wedding Photographers are as skilled and as experienced as you might expect.

With more people having increasingly extravagant weddings and some photographers charging extravagant prices it can be difficult to know who is good and who is not.

Many Wedding Photographers just capture the basic traditional shots such as the family portrait, the bride in her wedding dress, the bridal party, rings, first kiss, first dance, throwing the bouquet, cutting the cake etc.

Illusion Photography are different and understand that there is so much more to taking timeless photographs of your big occasion than this.

Illusion-Photography are highly skilled and experienced in working with you as a team, listening and understanding your requirements, planning, organising, managing large crowds etc.

When taking wedding photographs, Illusion Photography are creative and use the surroundings to make images unique. No bride wants to look at professional wedding images and realise they are the same as those captured by family and friends.

Illusion Photography knows that every bride, groom and wedding is different. They ensure that your Wedding Photographs represent this and capture the personalities of the bride, groom, family and friends. In particular, Illusion Photography look to capture moments that show what makes your love special.

Posed photographs can often appear awkward and un-natural.  Illusion Photography specialise in taking unique, imaginatively posed images by using the natural features of the venue surroundings and objects with a variety of viewpoints and angles, such as through archways, through mirror reflections, through the wedding rings etc.

Illusion Photography also capture the moments before the wedding itself as these are often missed.  Going to the homes of the bride and groom, Illusion Photography can take stunning and artistic images such as getting ready at home, vows and speeches written somewhere, make up, shoes and the dress hanging up.  By taking unique photos of things of interest that give the couple insights into what went on beforehand.

Illusion Photography are increasingly asked to include artistic Boudoir shots, which are the latest trend in wedding photography.  These are saucy, sensual photos of the bride and groom to capture the more loving side of being married. If done incorrectly, these images can look cheap and vulgar.  Illusion Photography have the artistic know-how to ensure they look sensual and beautiful with the perfect blend of soft focus, lighting, colour and monochrome.

There are many wedding photographers out there – our team make sure itsunique and capture the essence of the couples personalities and what makes their special day different. That is why choosing Illusion-Photography to capture your Wedding Photographs makes so much sense.
